The world was rocked on Tuesday night when, with less than a month to go in filming, it was announced the directing team of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (henceforth “Lord & Miller”) would be stepping down from their directors' chairs on the next stand-alone Star Wars production. Other than perhaps explaining why said movie still does not have an official title, nothing about what just happened made sense.
In Netflix's latest hit show GLOW, the first episode features Alison Brie as Ruth Wilder, a struggling actress who cannot get anyone to cast her for anything, not even a role that requires all of two lines. Speaking to IndieWire about the audition process, Brie revealed life imitated art in this case and, similarly to her character, she fought for the role.
Welcome to the second week of the Great British Baking Show, and our third round. With two episodes knocked out last week, today we’re already down to the Top Ten. And if it’s the third episode of GBBS, it must be Paul’s favorite–and most opinionated–week: BREAD. After the first two weeks, our stand outs are currently Jane and Candice for winning Star Baker notices, while Salasi, Benjamina and Andrew have also gotten high marks.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
